From the artist Cyriak: "A music video I made for the Bonobo track ‘Cirrus’. It uses clips from a 1962 film about the wonders of consumerism. ...the footage I used was downloaded from archive.org
, it really is a goldmine for us video artists."

What A Revelation!
I am in awe. Wonderfully entertaining and thought-provoking. A totally original, profoundly compelling work of art. Thank you so much for making it available for free.

My thanks go out to the previous reviewer, for bringing this clip to my attention.
There is a considerable proportion of modernistic art that exists simply for it's own sake. I understand the concept, and there are many fine examples to be had of this philosophy. However I personally have a general preference for art that attempts to have some sort of message to ponder, or has a connection of some sort to sociological matters, as this clip does.
It is very well put together; the choices and uses of the clips, is excellent. while visually very active, it refrains from feeling overly frenetic, and moves along at a nice pace.
The chosen soundtrack, well suits the imagery, without overwhelming it.
This is very well done, indeed.

Fantastic music video, and one that uses Prelinger footage well
I can not stop rewatching this. It is a wonderful recasting of commercialism and consumerism.
